Bud Lilly
Bud Lilly died on January 4th at the age of 91.  Bud was a Montana fly fishing icon, a legend in the fly fishing industry, and he was deeply involved in the beginning of Trout Unlimited in Montana.  I met Bud in 1977.
With support from TU VSP Advisory Council member Joe Butler, I had the amazing opportunity to exhibit and talk about the TU VSP program at the 2017 Student Veterans of America National Conference.  I spent 3 days talking with student veterans from across the country.
To celebrate our veterans members of the Blue Ridge Mountain Chapter #696 joined with Project Healing Waters at Noontootla Creek Farms to honor those whose have served our country. Fishing, friends and food and the healing effects of water, wind and sunshine. Doesn't get much better that that.
